Welcome to Walden Books

During this current situation our online stock is still available, and with a great deal of thanks to Royal Mail workers, and drivers and employees of the  courier services we use, books we send out are being delivered fairly  normally,  with just a short delay; and are available, with some restrictions, at the shop to see customers, and buy new stock.  
We buy and sell used and rare books, specialising in literature and the visual arts. (Read more about us.)
Do you want to sell us your books? We always want to buy good quality, secondhand books.
